What is (still) natural in an experience economy?

OMP 50.7 Nest 8 [Comfort Zone and Disillusion #3]

Author(s): Nacho Carbonell
ISBN13/Barcode: 9789078454748

Nacho Carbonell works within a culture of free-time and luxury, and seeks there the boundaries of a semi-fundamental / authentic experience. His work balances on the borderline between nature and culture. The work is exceedingly stylistically ‘designed’ and is thus as visually stimulating as the work of Anish Kapoor, but slick as a consumer product. Nonetheless his creations are unique objects, sometimes functional, sometimes not, but as images, always functioning autonomously – they always pose questions. This autonomy takes the limelight within the parameters of experience, which, through experimental use of materials, conveys a natural palpability. It doesn’t criticise directly, but rather poses extremely high-cultural, luxury questions about the natural within and of the experience economy.
